20 years before the hobby decided to call these "suspension" insulators, we called them "kiffles" - just made the name up! Here is a series of shots of a type that only 2 or 3 are known. I never could find whole ones. Originally, I was finding REALLY smashed ones, and thought they were a multipart ( "flappityback" ) and that tiny inner skirt was causing some serious head scratching!
